The Sûreté du Québec has opened an investigation into the death of an infant who was declared dead on Tuesday at Sainte-Justine Hospital in Montréal after being transported there from Sainte-Marthe-sur-le-Lac in the Laurentians.

They are considering the possibility the child died of suffocation after being assaulted.

According to a member of the infant’s family interviewed on Montreal radio station 98.5 FM, the infant’s mother had to go to work and was unable to find someone to care for her two children during her absence. The infant’s grandmother, a nurse who lives in the same building, was unable to help because she needed to rest after a long shift at work.

A friend of the mother suggested someone who could be available to care for the children, the mother agreed and then left for work.

Later, the grandmother went quickly to her daughter’s apartment after being told the infant appeared to be in cardiac arrest. Her attempts at resuscitation failed and an ambulance was called to take the child to hospital.

The grandmother transported to a hospital to be treated for shock and the older child was placed in the care of child protection authorities.

Nothing is immediately known about the person left to watch over the children.

Investigators of the SQ’s major crimes unit have been assigned the case.
